I want to thank all of you who expressed your concerns for me, my whereabouts and the status of

You may relax. I'm back home and doing fine.

My doctor, and a team of doctors, as a matter of fact, all scrambled to patch me back together. As a result, I will be left with little to no residual effects from the incident.

Again, thank you for your concerns and prayers.

And please send PayPal donations...10 days in the hospital isn't cheap, my brothers and sisters.
